The services of Oasis Center are now available to those pre-qualified members of the community who need and want these services, whether or not they have been involved within the criminal justice system. Oasis’ initial focus was to provide First Time Youth Offenders with highly qualified criminal legal assistance. Our premise was to give these youth a "second chance" to become productive citizens, without the burden of a criminal conviction on their records. By 2003, we found that there was an increase in the number of youth demonstrating criminal behavior who also had a parent or parents who were already involved within the criminal justice system.

It has been Oasis’ goal from our first day of ministry to assist and walk along side of those who face some of the most difficult challenges in transitioning back into our communities.

Our Mission
To provide life changing programs and services to first time youth offenders and formerly incarcerated persons.

Our Vision
To create a spiritual and social "model program" that can be replicated and scaled.

The programs of Oasis Center are available to all qualified low/moderate income members of our community who express the desire for change and who commit to attending our life skills and cognitive classes. Our TYRO Champion Program and our faith based Reentry Discipleship Program average two hours per week for 12 weeks. Our Community Work Camp is an eight day, eight hours a day job readiness, skill certification, and career placement program. Oasis also provides a first time youth offender program, and criminal legal assistance for youth and adult program participants.
